TGIFC16 Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Saturday!  Whew!  What a week I've had!  Saturdays are a chance to catch my breath and sometimes even have a little fun.  This morning I needed to make a birthday card for our oldest granddaughter, Nevaeh.  Is it wrong that I combined a sketch challenge with a birthday card that I needed to make??  I hope not.  lol  I'm entering this card in TGIF Challenge #16 .  When I saw it I couldn't wait to give it a shot.  It was an awesome sketch challenge!  Here's what the sketch looks like:

Here's my card for the sketch.

I had a stencil that I used for the background with Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White cardstock.   I've seriously had that stencil for about 4 years and this is the first time I've used it.  I knew it would get used sooner or later. lol  The balloon was stamped in Melon Mambo.  I used some confetti chunky glitter in the shaker and used some on the outside along with some Doodlebug sequins.    The cardbase is Island Indigo and the bottom of the hot air ballon was stamped in Island Indigo as well.  I used fun foam with the same balloon die cut as the top layer to add the depth for the shaker.  This was a fun card to make.  I think Nevaeh will like it as she loves a little bling.  Here's a picture of the beautiful birthday girl..

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,  Tina
